  4. 159 2.2 JTS petrol injector rail removal (or not in this case)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey there! So for some time I've had a misfire on cylinder 4 and checked multiple things to no avail. I've done the plugs, coil, checked wiring, MAF sensor etc, and think I've got a problematic injector, or something around it like the wiring or oil leaking onto it or something. So I tried...

  6. The mysterious case of the Rover Vitesse's missing horsepower

    General Motoring Discussion
    In order to finally bring myself up to date with modern metal and motoring matters, over a leisurely coffee this morning I took the time to read and absorb the contents of an issue of Autocar from December 1982. I am excited to see that Rover is to introduce the Rover Vitesse, a high performance...
  7. The mysterious case of the emergency stop and the coolant warning light

    General Motoring Discussion
    Hey chaps, Weekend going well, I hope. Here's an interesting puzzler to ponder on the bank holiday. :) I'd driven about 35 miles today in pretty warm temperature. Not hard driving, just gentle cruising, not stuck in traffic. Car running fine, engine temp just over 80, where is normally sits...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello everyone, I have been following this forum for quite some time but in the past 3 years and I have been lucky enough to be pretty much problem free with my GTV 2.0TS, until now... So this is my first post, and I seek some advice from you fellow alfisti! It's about couple of weeks that...
  11. Key case replacement

    Alfa Giulietta
    Noticed some cheap replacement key cases on Amazon and tempted to replace one of my keys which is a little worn looking and the blade no longer folds flush. Sounds easy enough to move insides between cases and have the blade cut. Has anyone bought a similar blank replacement case and had it cut...

  13. Head case

    I've just got the Spider back after one of the head gaskets went. Both heads skimmed, valve stems done, new water pump, cambelt and followers, aux belt, full service including plugs, driveshaft gaiter, brake pads unstuck and new anti roll bar. Not cheap but reasonable and, as usual, great...
  14. 145km (90 miles) From A Full Tank & Shaking- case study

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    This is a case study illustrating what I did to cure the shaking of the engine and reduce fuel consumption from 145km (90 miles) per tank to 315 kms (186 miles)per tank. I bought another GTV 3.0 litre last August for a song. It sounded like a bag of nails when running. It had sat for a year...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Went to move my 156 last weekend and grabbed my wife's keys. Pressed remote key unlock. Nothing. After a few pokes, noticed the battery and its carrier had vanished. Bum. Anyway, bought a cheapy case off of flea bay...

  17. HORRIFIC case of service

    South Africa
    Last week I made a call to William Simpson Tokai to book my GTA in for repairs. The lady who does bookings still nicely confirmed that its an Alfa Romeo I'm bringing in, and besides all my details were already on the system so they can see what car I have. Then anyway, on Monday I hired a flat...

  19. Michael Beavis's parking case.

    General Motoring Discussion
    For those of you who have gone with the old chestnut, that it's only an invoice for parking or overstaying on private land, Michael Beavis's case which was going to be the test case has failed. The high court has ruled that the charge of £85 is fair, so any of you who have ignored your parking...
